Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: M88/05/34 ?

The first y tube , the guy is a moron , has NO idea what he is doing . Everything he says is wrong , even to the point of contradicting himself many times . Second one is a little better , some is correct , but much is not . He gets the meanings of all the markings wrong , he just used other incorre...

Re: M88/05/34 ?

Since the Turks made that rifle modification , it will be Turk marked . Since it is pre 1899 receiver it should never have had an import mark . As for a price , they are not real popular , all in about the same condition and have .323 groove barrels . $200 to $300 ??

I can not hit a target with any of my 5 Carcanos with Prvi ammo. Not sure if it's all :text-bs: but an interesting read. :roll: B...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

Yes that is the regular Hornady .264 dia round nose bullet . Just load it with a regular expander ball made for .264 bullets .

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

My accuracy standards are probably tougher than most people's . I do not use cast bullets in Carcanos as they do not shoot well in most for several reasons . 1. Gain twist rifling tears up cast bullets . Deep rifling deforms cast bullets . You would need a cast bullet to fit the bore on the one rifl...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

They are not silver plated . That is a slick nickel alloy . The Italian military bullets are .2658 dia . They are make that way for a reason .

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

Those bullets in factory loads are the reason the two rifles in the video had blow outs . They also my be the reason another guy , in another video , had blow outs in two Vetterli's . He did not understand either . I bought 1000 of the Hornady bullets when they first came out and tested them in many...

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

The bad bullet is the .2675 Hornady 160 round nose . Tell Graff that is not the bullet used in some of their loaded ammo , since THEY say it is . Also Graff used the Privi made and headstamped cases . Hornady's load does NOT fix the problem . Over the years the land and groove dia used on Carcano's ...

Re: Finished collection, now what?

The cost of shooting the 98 k's was just a fraction of the two of us shooting at least 100 rounds through over 5000 military rifles .

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

The guy in the video has no idea what the problems are . So far in every thing I have seen on ytube " the guys " have no idea what they are doing , that is why they are on ytube . Look in the reloading section here under " cast bullets for Carcano's " and I covered it a little .

Re: Interesting Gun Failures

Yes the 300 is a .223 rifle killer . The same thing is happening to the 6.5mm Carcanos .
